“A great holiday rental in the Dordogne!”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed 8 nights at John's great apartment that offers all one can expect from an holiday accommodation: spacious very comfortable apartment, very well equipped kitchen - John really thought of everything, and above all a most welcoming and helpful host. And last but not least - the view over the valley from the backyard! It was too cool to enjoy the pool, which must be great on warmer days.
We hope to be able to return next year.

“2 visits, 5 weeks and every day.... blissful!!”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

From the warm emails, the helpful travel information, the personalised touches, we have enjoyed every minute of the past 2 holidays here. A host who cares, offering you the privacy or the social occasion that you require, ever present with a barbeque, an offer of an aperitif or even simple peace and quiet around the spotless pool and picturesque views.

This year, three weeks of solace, freedom and pool days. 20 mins away from Sarlat, evening and mid week market days offering medieval ruins, great food and wonderful people. 10 mins away from Domme, brilliant views, sunsets and ice creams!! - and a million miles away from civilisation if you want it at the apartment, looking over the Valley.

Three years we have been together. This apartment has been our holiday home from homes for 2 years courtesy of the hosts and the blissful environment, and the pace of life. I have the pleasure to announce our engagement at the apartment this year beneath shooting stars and brilliantly clear nights. I would recommend this venue to anyone wanting a holiday to look forward to. Anyone wishing to be advised of what to do, where to go and how best to fill the occasional cloudy days - anyone that is prepared to drive the extra hours to find a host that offers so much, an apartment that you can enjoy and make home, and a region that is thoroughly beautiful.

Enjoy - but we'll be back, so book early!!

“Great house in a great location”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved our stay, and John was as helpfully as all the other reviews mention. I'd say that a car is essential for exploring the area, but we did walk into town regularly for groceries. The area itself is delightful and even after a week, there was still much left to do and explore... maybe next time.

“Best Stay in Four Months of Europe”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Thank you so much John for your attention to detail - perfect scores from us in all respects - and especially comfort and location - just wonderful. We are so pleased you chose the Dordogne to set up! We enjoyed every moment of our two weeks stay in this magnificent area and thank you for all your assistance to a couple of Kiwis from "down under" - your wonderful hospitality was most appreciated. Aire des Buses will remain very special to us and was without doubt our best accommodation in four months of driving in Europe. This gite is truly the best!
